Knowledge and techniques from medical traditions ranging from east to west—including Ayurvedic, traditional Chinese, modern, and naturopathic medicine—come together at Integrated Health Center. Dr. K. Pramila Vishvanath, N.D., active in her communities both stateside and overseas, directs the center. Dr. Pram and her staff target the entire body as opposed to individual symptoms, embracing naturopathic medicine to address conditions such as chronic pain, weight loss, and allergies. Integrated Health Center combines analysis with uniquely tailored solutions for each patient, and the staff conducts healing sessions via Skype if a patient's car catches a case of agoraphobia.
Doctor of Chiropractic and certified acupuncturist Patrick J. Guerin helms Westport Chiropractic, where he and his staff perform nonsurgical treatments for neck, back, and spine issues. They offer spinal decompression, adjustments, and acupuncture to help assuage leg, shoulder, hand, and foot pain, along with other maladies such as herniated discs and headaches.
To help clients combat weight problems, Westport Chiropractic offers noninvasive Lipo Light body-contouring treatments. These use light and heat energy to shrink fat cells and boost collagen and elastin production, which results in lost inches and smoother, tighter skin. Dr. Guerin also uses ear acupuncture to decrease a client's desire for food.
Dr. Lori Breiner strives to promote mind and body wellness by offering her patients a host of healing treatments. An ancient practice used to treat illness and balance the body, a 30- to 45-minute acupuncture session aims to release positive energy known as "qi" by inserting fine needles into specific points on the patient's body. The acupuncture session can be tailored to address specific points of pain or general bodily unrest. Alternatively, Dr. Breiner tailors chiropractic sessions to suit each client's skeletal needs, commencing with a spinal analysis. The sessions aim to balance the body through spinal, postural, and soft-tissue corrections, which the doctor makes via manual adjustments. The treatment is designed to decrease muscle and soft-tissue tension and pain, and to help ease the pressure of carrying the world in a backpack.
The certified technicians at Safe Laser Therapy work to help clients to achieve aesthetic and wellness goals with drug-free, holistic treatments. Laser therapy sessions attempt to help patrons to lose weight, quit smoking, and reduce stress levels. In private rooms, body wraps direct infrared beams at the skin, using gentle warmth to remove the toxins that accumulate in the body naturally, and rejuvenates the body with increased blood circulation and increased energy level.
